I ordered 6 of these chairs (in orange) from wayfair, to go with my brown table. They arrived within a few days in three boxes, two chairs in each. Two boxes looked beaten up, but the content seemed to have survived the journey. At first glance - they seemed fine, but of low quality (I guess I should have anticipated that, given the price). Also, the color (orange) was dull. It didn't have the shine of the chairs in the online pictures. I have a lot of experience assembling furniture together (including chairs), but the assembly of these chairs proven to be real challenge. I am surprised at other reviews who suggested assembly is easy. Together with a friend of mine I spent hours trying to assemble and adjust these chairs. Yes, we had to assemble 6 chairs, so obviously it took longer, but still. They were very difficult to assemble, especially the seat cushion to the back cushion, because you cannot see the nuts when inserting the bolts. You have to find the holes "in the dark", and with the nuts being in an angle, for some of the bolts it took many attempts until they managed to get in. It was further complicated by the fact that the nuts were not aligned well with the holes in the seat cushion, and we had to force the bolts in. For one chair, the nuts were completely off of where they should be, and we simply couldn't put it together. Just on that chair we spent more than an hour. I eventually drilled new holes in the frame, so the bolts will align with the nuts. All the chairs were wobbly/uneven, once assembled. The chairs came with a piece of paper saying that we need to sit on the chair, in order to adjust the legs. However, this is easier said than done. It took us a couple of hours, since not only it was difficult to tighten the bolts (because of the mis-aligned nuts). We also had to do it again and again (every time loosening the bolts a little bit), because it didn't work. At the end, three of the six chairs were still uneven on the hardwood floors. I had to use extra furniture-pads to even the legs, but that is a temporary solution. There were other small things, like a few small cuts (but barely visible) in the vinyl upholstery, missing washer, and several missing protector pads at the bottom of the legs (I had some spare ones in my toolbox, so I used them before starting aligning the chairs). I am concerned these chairs will loosen with use, making them even more wobbly. Moreover, the wood under the seat cushion is made of very thin and fragile balsa wood. I could already hear the wood cracking when sitting, and I am not a heavy person. To summarize - difficult to assemble and of poor quality. On the positive side - they are cheap, and they look quite good (that's why I gave them two stars and not one star). And kudos to Wayfair, for their very good customer service.
Great product for the price!

These are as pictured so don't expect a lighter brown, these are very dark. They are very comfortable to sit in the padding is nice and the back has a slight arch. The only thing that took getting used to is the fact that they are very light weight, as it is a little surprising at first. That is the only reason why I gave them 4 out of 5 stars and why I said they were great for the price. I have a lot of children and didn't want to spend a lot of money so these were perfect. They were very simple to put together. The seat bolts to the back and then the two front legs bolt to the seat. There is even a bottom cover that velcro's on to the bottom of the seat to hide all the bolts and framing.
Pair of chairs :)

Great set, can't beat the price. Assembly was easy enough, look is fantastic, and quality seems good. I have received several compliments on these chairs, they really dress up my small dining area. They don't get tons of use from me, so I can't speak to how long they may last. Happy with my purchase and do recommend to others needing an affordable, good looking set. The color is very dark, could easily be mistaken for black, but either black or brown works for me, so this is not an issue. Material is fine, smooth and nice looking, though pretty clearly not genuine leather, but also not an issue.

I ordered 4 of these chairs. They are very nice looking, and seem to be quite sturdy and well made. The faux leather is thicker and sturdier than an office chair I bought elsewhere and paid much more for. My only complaint is that two of the 4 chairs were difficult to put together due to the screw holes not being lined up properly. In fact, one was impossible to put together as the holes were so far off. But Wayfair's customer service was incredible! They took care of it immediately and have a very happy and loyal customer!
Exactly What I Was Looking For
Celina from Cairo, GA – Verified Buyer
I ordered 6 of these chairs for a large antique dining table and they look beautiful. I didn't want a chair that sits high because the table is made a slight bit low. Putting them together wasn't too hard. My 16 year old son helped me and we followed the directions. I only had one chair out of balance and I followed the directions on how to level it and it worked like a charm. I'm very happy with my purchase. It was worth it to me to put them together myself (43 year old female) to save all the money I did to buy 6 new dining chairs!
Better than expected!
Kelly from Milwaukee, WI – Verified Buyer
I originally had purchased a set of four of these chairs. It was going to be just a somewhat temporary replacement for old furniture in attempts to make my apartment look more modern. I ended up loving these chairs so much, I decided they were something I would like to have around for the long run, so I purchased two more (for use with a bigger table)! I am tempted to just go for a set of 8 just to have when the time comes to get a large dining table. These are extremely easy to put together and look amazing! I ordered the gray..Color is pretty close to what as shown. Probably looks a little more blue on the website.

I was a little leery about purchasing chairs on line. My trepidation continued when the box arrived and it was partially opened and looked like it had been thrown around during the delivery process. However, once I opened the box, everything was tightly sealed and protected. The assembly was super easy. The chairs are very sturdy but do not weigh too much. (My young kids can easy move them.) They look very nice in my home---the chairs look even better in person than online. Good quality for the price. I would recommend this product.
Nice dining chairs for the price
Erin from Shell Beach, CA – Verified Buyer
I purchased four of these dining chairs to place around a grey reclaimed wood table. I am happy with the quality of the chairs. They are very sturdy and the assembly was quick and easy. The only drawback is the color. The chairs are not grey as described. They are a very light blue like a robins egg. Since it is so expensive to ship back items, I decided to use them anyway and just added darker blue and coral tones to my décor and I am happier with the color.
Stylish, Comfortable and a Great Value
Lisa from Tehachapi, CA – Verified Buyer
Bought these chairs in red for our newly decorated music room. Had a hard time deciding which color to get..the light brown (which others said was more a pumpkin or cinnamon color) or the red. I had never purchased furniture in a red color before, but so glad we picked the red! The chairs really "pop" and help bring out the other hints of red in the room. They are a bit lighter color red than pictured, as others have mentioned, but are still a deeper shade of red and are very pretty. My husband put them together easily, they are sturdy and are super comfortable. With a shorter seat, these chairs work great for me ( I'm only 5') and they give very good back support for me while playing my bass. These chairs met all my expectations and have a look more of a leather which makes them very attractive. Such a great value, order arrived very quickly and we are so happy with our purchase!
Good Quality Chairs for the Price
Amy from Santa Clarita, CA – Verified Buyer
Good quality chairs for the price. Pretty easy to put together. I did notice other people comment that the holes for the screws didn't match up. That was the case in only one of the holes on the one of the chairs for me. I put the chairs in my boss's office. He really doesn't see that many clients in his office but I was surprised when I noticed one the chairs was really wobbly after only being sat in a few times. I tightened everything up and will watch it. I'm not sure if I just didn't tighten the screws enough when putting it together or if these chairs will always need to be tightened periodically. Oh, and the color is very dark, almost black. I wanted these chairs for our reception area but they were so dark they didn't work. I ended up putting them in my boss's office instead and they look good there.
